2021 HIPAA Security Manual with Training
If your a physician, dentist or other healthcare professional and submit claims electronically you're considered a 'covered entity' and required to comply with HIPAA. The Security Rule specifically focuses on the protection of electronic protected health information (ePHI).
Too often we see facilities that have safeguards in place like passwords, daily backups and/or building alarm systems but they fail to have policies that identify them. HHS requires a combination of technical, physical and administrative safeguards to secure patient data.
Administrative safeguards cover over 1/2 of the HIPAA Security requirements. They focus on the organization internally, like your policies and procedures,employee training and documentation.

Don't risk your practice by not having policies and documentation. Annual risk assessments and policy reviews are required for all covered entities, but they doesn't have to be complicated, time consuming or expensive.
The HITECH Act and Omnibus Rule clarified that all health service entities, business associates and subcontractors in the private sector that access, maintain, retain, modify, record, store, destroy, or otherwise hold, use, or disclose protected health information is accountable to HHS for HIPAA and HITECH requirements for breach prevention activities, audits, notifications, and penalties for disclosures.
